Saugus Distance Learning Tool Kit

Important information for getting the year started...

Teachers will need to send out Google Classroom codes using IC messenger on August 7th (when schedules are pretty much set and movement will be minimal). Click here to watch a quick tutorial on how to send that message.

You can also invite students (and their parents) to join the Google Classroom. Click here for a quick tutorial on that.

Click here to see a video on how to use IC and Excel to invite students to Google Classroom.

Just a suggestion from one teacher to another...

Master one or two new pieces of technology. Get to know it really well so that you can use it effectively. Then move on to another new technology. Don't try to learn and implement everything all at once - it's too much, too fast, and it'll make you crazy!
